NO PAIN NO GAIN

AND THE WINNERS ARE:

1st Place Brighid  Correctly guessed 5 out of 6.  Brighid will receive a special prize in the mail.

2nd Place Snaggle Tooth. Correctly guessed 5 out of 6 and was a day after Brighid so she takes 2nd and receives honorable mention and a shout out.

3rd Place  Gigi Hawaii  Was the first to correctly guess 2 out of 6. She receives an honorable mention and a shout out.

I apologize for any pain these drawings cause the subjects and hope they gained some attention from other bloggers who might not have seen their blogs before.


It is my goal someday to sit on a street corner and draw caricature portraits as fast as I can and have the subjects be recognizable.  Or I might like to try being a court room artist.  The faster I go, the better my pictures turn out. I love to draw pictures from the television shows I watch.

THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR PARTICIPATING AND 
COMMENTING ON THIS FUN CONTEST.

  1. I know, I almost flunked College English for failure to follow directions.
    I had thought that was Kay, pretty sure about Brighid but as you know, I jumped the gun.
    Now that I see the pictures, I can only say-- well done.

  2. ARKANSAS PATTI, just because you jumped the gun didn't mean you couldn't come back and email your guesses. Glad you think I did well. Thanks.

  3. Nicely done! Well, practice makes perfect. My father-in-law used to go down to the local coffee shop to sketch people almost every day.

  9. CATHY, I kept hoping I would get an email from you. Got lots of nice comments on my sketch of you.

  10. LYNN, I got too far down on the page or I could have included her chin which might have made her more recognizable. Several did guess her.

  12. GIGIHAWAII, That is awfully nice coming from you as one of the subjects. I can already see what I would do over on yours. Glad you liked it and congrats again on third place. Hope new bloggers will visit you.

  13. Very neat! Congrats to the winners! I think you should do that, Annie. Go and sit on a lovely summer afternoon on a street corner and draw away. The ability to capture the essence in such limited time is truly remarkable.

  15. That is very cool and I'm sorry I didn't know enough fellow bloggers to guess! Of course, had you done a cat with a machine gun, I might have had a clue...

  17. MAGE, it makes more sense to put them side by side. Thanks for coming back.

  18. RIOT KITTY, I will have to think about that next time. I do have a photo of you and could use it but it is too hidden on your blog. LOL

  19. I'm surprised I got second!
    I think you captured the gestures used in the profiles which made it easier to guess. Tough to get me to email tho-

    I actually missed sleeping an hour to do the e-mail, then the whole following week didn't get enough sleep. Still catching up. Work has been a zoo.
